and into the evening hours. a tornado warning now for southeastern virginia, a warning is different from a watch, a warning means a torn -- tornado has been spotted in the area. if you're in the area of virginia beach, the signs have been spotted in the sky and the warning is out now. we're going to watch this system as it moves. back to janice dean in our extreme weather center in a moment, so keep an eye on that in virginia. martha: all right, in california, there's a measure that would scrap a nonpartisan commission that was supposed to redraw the legislative districts there, two years after voters in the golden state the idea a thumbs up but even before the panel has had a chance to convene. what's that all about? william la jeunesse is checking it out live in los angeles. hey william. >> reporter: martha, and unions, rather critics, including the l.a. times, are telling speaker pelosi and the unions and the state democratic party to back off. accusing them of being self-serving and undemocratic and spending millions of dollars to undo the what voters already approved. >> they were perpetra
richmond, southeastern virginia around norfolk or east of raleigh, rth carolina through the wilmington area, that until 1:00 p. and it's areas around frederick county down through the district on south and off to the east. a lot of folks say, well, what do i do when i'm under a tornado warning? if you're at home, you want to get to a basement if possible, away from any windows and doors and away from the west and southwest walls. that's where we find a tremendous amount of wind with these systems moving from typically southwest to northeast. unr anything srdy if you can and away from any flying devertebrae. t debris. if you live in a high rise, what's the safest place? you do not want to be in an elevator. interior rooms and halls are best. there's a look at some of the rainfall. you folks in fredericburg, virginia, getting over 2 inches of rain. that's just today. over 3 1/2 for this storm alone. look at fairfax, virginia. 3.9 inches, the total storm amount. st. mary's city, a lot of rain in a very short period of time, close to 9 inches there. you can see why we have some road closures ou
of coastal south carolina and north carolina right up into southeastern virginia and tornadoes are a real threat when we have tropical systems going by. some of the thunderstorms tomorrow in our area could rotate, although they do tend to be weaker storms. we've got this east coast tropical highway with all of the abundant tropical moisture moving to the north and it's just got this one spot it has to funnel through right up the east coast and that's why we know we'll have this period of very heavy rain coming in and it will be here for the morning rush hour. flash flood watch will begin at midnight and go through the day tomorrow and yes, we are talking about inches of rain and concerned about any thunderstorms that could pop up. there is a slight chance they could be strong to severe with winds that could gust to 60 or higher and maybe spin a little bit producing isolated tornadoes. that threat will primarily be from 95 on east and probably tomorrow afternoon. so here's probably one of the most important things we can show you, what a great tool our max hd futurecast is. at 10:00 tonigh

achievement. i've got a story right now on where i spent a couple of days this weekend in southeastern virginia. there's a democratic incumbent congressman glenn nye, a freshman, on the ropes facing a tough republican challenge. and as gloria says, he doesn't want to be anywhere close to health reform. he voted against the plan. he doesn't want the president campaigning in his district. this was supposed to be an issue that was tough a few months ago. to gut it out and get it through. but then the white house was suggesting, look, it's going to be a big win for democrats. and instead, a lot of them are running from it. and the president, this is the first time he's mentioned health reform in a big sense in quite some time. he's been focusing on economy and jobs because he knows that's what people want to hear. >> you know, ali, i think people want a change, but they didn't want this much change. and i think when you look at health care reform, it's so large -- it's not very easy for people to digest, particularly when this is administration that has also done the stimulus package, it's
